Emotions and feelings

2 Timothy 1:7
God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

While God gave you the ability to feel, He doesn’t want your feelings or emotions to rule you in a way that makes both you and your husband miserable. He wants you to bring all your feelings and emotions to Him – your Lord and confidant – and put them in the hands and under the control of the Holy Spirit.

God has placed His Spirit within us to give us power, love and self control.  We do not have to be ruled by our emotions.  If you’re going through a difficult time at work, if you are stressed beyond what you can bear or if your hormones are wreaking havoc in your emotions, you can rely on the Holy Spirit to help you.
